Topic Background:

The ritual of the employee performance appraisal is rooted in good intention and yet, almost no one likes it. With few exceptions, employees find the exercise demeaning while managers consider it a profound waste of time. Despite the disdain, the practice can be found in organizations of all shapes and sizes. Why then, is everyone doing something that everyone hates? Perhaps the most powerful reason stems from the compliance-driven belief that as an organization, “Performance evaluations are supposed to protect us.”

Fear of litigation is a powerful motivator. Every formally educated HR leader has been indoctrinated in the belief that performance evaluations are essential for documenting the file in a manner that will protect the organization from an employee who wants to cause it harm. Hence, it doesn’t matter that no one likes the ritual. It’s a prophylactic measure designed for protection, not popularity. The fatal flaw with this argument is that performance evaluations almost always do more harm than good.

More often than not, your forms will be used in court against you, rather than for you. Study your own case history. Ask your labor attorney. Like it or not, the data overwhelmingly suggests that the gun you put in the night stand beside your bed is more likely to be used against your family than to stop an outside intruder. It’s not what you want. It’s just a fact.
